  4. XR Technical Specs
    Hi. Having had the piston disintegrate into the engine on my 2004 XR400 I am now looking at a fairly major rebuild. I am ok with that but I was wondering if all the XR400 engines are the same? It certainly would make finding all the parts easier. At this time I need a new barrel, 4 valves...
  5. Africa Twin
    Mine is siezed good and proper, at the end that bolts to the frame. It is going to need attacking with extreme prejudice, but before I get the really big hammer out, I need to know if the bolt that attaches the link to the frame is held in place just by the nut on the bolt, or alternatively it...

    Hi, Im new to this forum but not biking. Im just back from 2 weeks biking around Mozambique and South Africa. My mate brought me a 1988 XVR650 for the trip. Its in good original shape with about 60,000 kms on the clock. He wants US 1500$ for it. I understand they are fairly rare so is it worth...

    Hello, I recently bought an LM which someone had been using as a field bike. I've pulled out the engine and found there are a couple of cracks in the cylinder head, between the spark plug thread and the valves, as well as a couple of loose valve seats. Firstly, does anyone have one that they...
  8. For Sale / Wanted
    When chasing one of the faster guys down on the Tour of Portugal rally a few weeks ago, me and the bike caught some roost and later discovered that i'd stupidly left the headlight protector off and as such have smashed a headlamp. Bugger! As such i need a replacement, its the offside one thats...

    Has anyone replaced both the top and bottom steering bearings on their TA 650? My one will fail the MOT evidently, so looking to replace them myself. Looks fairly straight forward. Are there any major problems with the job. Be great to hear from someone who has already done this. Regards Pete

    Hi, I'm fairly new to biking, so far i've never let the bike out of my sight on a ride which obviously isn't ideal. Please can you advise what solutions you have? I have a motorbike chain but it weighs 12+kg so I dont know how best to transport it? Seem to think the rear rack is only rated to...

    Is this a known issue with the AT? Noticed a puddle on my garage floor, been dreading finding out the cause but it just seems to be the rubber gasket. From what I can see it looks fine though and I'm confused as to why a fairly durable looking gasket could just fail suddenly. Best pic I...
  12. Chatter
    Guy turned up at the H cafe bike night last night on a brand new Yamaha R1M... He only had a woman pull out in front of him just down the road from the cafe 5 mins before he turned up and slid it down the road...:eek: It was all scraped down the left side. He seemed fairly matter of fact about...

    So my bike was either knocked over, or blown up during a fairly violent storm, recently - someone, no idea who, picked it up - which was rather nice of them :) But my handlebar is now bent (and the mirror's broken). It's hard to quantify but if I had to try I'd say there's probably a 3° to 5°...

    Have noticed recently a loud clicking noise from what I think is the driveline, I can feel it through the foot pegs as well, particularly at lower speeds, sub 20mph, I've checked the chain and can't see any obvious tight spots, but have noticed the front sprocket has a lot of movement on the...
  15. Africa Twin
    First of all, Hello - just registered having just inherited a 1991 RD04 AT. It will be a bit of a project for me - my Dads old bike and been lying for a few years, so plenty of time in the garage wielding the spanners! One thing I do need fairly sharp style is a front master cylinder for the...
  16. Dominator / FMX
    your thought's before I get started I'm thinking of converting a dommie for local classic scrambles club races only stipulations are air cooled engine and drum brakes I can get a donor bike for about £500 but need to swap wheels and probably forks and swinging arm am I about to enter a world of...

    Finally got the bike back on the road today, don't know if it's the exhaust note that is tempting me to open her up more but the bikes feels like it's got more grunt. Obviously a service helps and the fact that I'm fairly pedestrian normally but the rasp of the new exhaust and I kept noticing I...
  18. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Met up with Dirt Monkey at the weekend for a potter round the lanes around the North Downs. More mud than expected but was generally dry and fairly easy going. Looking for more people to join the next one... come on lads, you know you want to!! Slidey.

    hi guys, now go with me on this one as i'm a fairly newbie when it comes to 'fettlin' the motorbike... Ive started hearing a slapping sound when i pull away in each gear (well mainly 1st -3rd), its definitely in the front sprocket area, chain and sprockets are all good, now wear on drive...

    First off, I already have a genuine Honda Shop Manual for the XL650Vy (Part number - 62MCBA60). What I'm after is some info from the supplement to the manual that caters for the (admittedly minimal) changes to the later bikes, ie 2004 on. These had wiring mods (compared to the original 650's)...
